The Evil Queen
The Evil Queen | Gena Showalter
22 posts | 11 read | 15 to read
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Everlife trilogy, the White Rabbit Chronicles and the Lords of the Underworld saga comes a fantastical and dark new fairy-tale fantasy series featuring the least likely of heroes... "Evil isn't born, it's made. One thought and action at a time. Take a good look at what you've made." Far, far away, in the realm of Enchantia, creatures of legend still exist, magic is the norm and fairy tales are real. Except, fairy tales aren't based on myths and legends of the past - they are prophecies of the future. Raised in the mortal realm, Everly Morrow has no idea she's a real-life fairy-tale princess - until she manifests an ability to commune with mirrors. Look. See... What will one peek hurt? Soon, a horrifying truth is revealed. She is fated to be Snow White's greatest enemy, the Evil Queen. With powers beyond her imagination or control-and determined to change Fate itself - Everly returns to the land of her birth. There, she meets Roth Charmaine, the supposed Prince Charming. Their attraction is undeniable, but their relationship is doomed. As bits and pieces of the prophecy unfold, Everly faces one betrayal after another, and giving in to her dark side proves more tempting every day. Can she resist, or will she become the queen - and villain - she was born to be? The battle between good and evil is on.

This was bad. Like next level bad. I hear there‘s a second book which I‘m sure will be just as bad but I‘m gonna read it anyway. (I can‘t stand to not finish a story, I have to know what happens even if it sucks bad, like reaaaaaaaally bad)

Fairytale retellings are one of my favorite genres of books and I normally love them! However I‘m struggling SO HARD with this book. It seems so childish and has no good character or world building at all. I‘m trying so hard to finish it but I don‘t know if I can. 😭

ThePinkMoose I find her works to be hit or miss. I loved Alice in Zombieland but hated Everlife even though I finished the series. I kept thinking it would get better. 2w
Brittybuhh This is the second time I‘ve picked this back up trying to get through it. If I put it down again I think I‘m just gonna have to DNF it 2w
ThePinkMoose Man I hate that. I love retellings too. Hope it picks up for you. 2w

rroeme I loved it! But everyone is different. 2w
Brittybuhh @rroeme I‘m getting through it 😂 I guess it‘s not thatttttt bad, it‘s just not as developed as I‘m used to. 1w
rroeme @Brittybuhh I think it‘s because it going to be a series so it‘s a little “beginning” if you know what I mean. Lol. And it‘s an author who usually writes 15 book series and this is her first ya book 7d
Brittybuhh @rroeme dang. I really hope it gets a lot better and that it‘s a 15 book series 😂 that would be amazing. 6d

This is the book that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friends
I started reading it not knowing what it was
And I‘ll continue reading it forever just because

Seriously I knew this was 20+ hours going in but I was hoping it didn‘t feel like 20+ hours. I‘m feeling every minute.

Already a couple pages in and loving it so far. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was always my favorite story and to see it in a different style is something I never thought I had to get my hands on. 😁

Loving this new take on damsel! 🍎 ♥️

P.S. this one has excellent banter amongst the cast!

Guys...I couldn‘t. This was just bad. The dialogue was awful, the characters were just annoying. It was like being around a bunch of high schoolers that have NOTHING interesting to say. Skip this. #struggle

Not sure why I left the blockbuster to be the last of my #augustrso2019 #preview reads. Might it be that I am a little bit over retelling fairy tales to redeem the ‘baddies‘? Weeeeellll, possibly. (Read yes). #currentlyreading #retelling #ginashowalter #openmind #letsgetthisdone

LibrarianRyan kind of jelly you have a copy of that. 5mo

My latest #tbrpile for #augustrso2019 some Oz 🇦🇺📚stuff there which makes me happy, but also a blockbuster too. A good mix of middle and older readers.

tracey38 Excited for the new Gena Showalter book. Love her! 6mo

I love Showalters adult books. I expect nothing less of her teen books. Also good for #Booked2019 #retelling.
